The Striped Mystus Catfish is known from a variety of different habitats; from the calm waters of lakes and swamps to flowing river waters. Here these bagrids take shelter in marginal vegetation, often forming large shoals as they forage. This species requires a spacious aquarium with a soft sand substrate. There should be plenty of hiding places/visual barriers amongst driftwood, rocky caves, PVC pipes/flowerpots, and robust planting. The more hiding places that are provided, the more the catfish are likely to venture out and about, as they will get to know they have safe places to quickly retreat to if they feel the need.
